The nearest town to Area 51 has warned people to stay away from a music festival being organised by the man behind a call to arms that saw more than two million people sign up to storm the military base.

So many committed to the proposed raid of the complex in Nevada in the hope of seeing aliens that the US air force felt compelled to warn it “stands ready to protect America and its assets”, and the Facebook event was eventually shut down after its organiser admitted it was a joke.

But the spirit of the original plan is now living on in the form of Alienstock – a “party in the desert” set to take place in the nearby town of Rachel next month.

Storm Area 51 creator Matty Roberts has teamed up with event producer The Hidden Sound to put on the festival, where people can safely display their “unified curiosity” in the existence of extra-terrestrial life.

The organisers are promising to deliver an “amazing experience” with “headlining artists” – but those claims have been questioned by local authorities.

In a warning to those planning to make the trip for the planned event, the official website for Rachel says the three-day gig will “undoubtedly attract crooks trying to capitalise on the chaos”.

It advises people to “stay away” from residential areas of the town, which has become a tourist attraction because of how close it is to Area 51, as most locals “do not like where this event is going and will respond accordingly”.
